When this car came out I was determined to get one, especially since I had to sell my 72 Cutlass. I could only afford the base model. This motor (2.7) is good on gas but lacks power. After a year the tranny had to be replaced, that same year the engine began to tick. Took it to a dealer in Manassas at least four times and they could never find the problem until after my warranty expired. Which was another issue b/c I was told I had the Lifetime warranty but only had a 36,000 mile warranty. So now I ride around town with my music up loud to block out the lifters ticking. Which i have to pay $1200 to get fixed.
Looks great and can take a beating. Moved to VA and was rearended twice in one year both time the other cars left on tow trucks and my car only had a scratch on the bumper.
Well they already got rid of the 2.7, so my suggest would be recall the ones still out there and fix them. But that will never happen.
